Nutritionists Eat Pizza

"I'm a vegetarian, and pizza is one of my favorite foods. I make my own: I whip up a recipe that's half whole-wheat and half regular crust and load it with vegetables and part-skim mozzarella. I cut myself a good-size slice after baking it."
-- Kathy McManus, R.D., director of the department of nutrition at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston

My Typical Breakfast

Whole-wheat toast spread with peanut butter, and some yogurt and fruit. About once a month I make whole-wheat waffles topped with fresh berries.

Lunch Is...

...A large green salad with veggies and some low-fat cottage cheese.

The Healthy Dinner I Cook Most Often

Whole-wheat pasta with marinara sauce, eggplant and part-skim mozzarella.

I Snack at 3:30

I hit an energy low at this time of day. I have a quarter cup of nuts or a Kashi TLC Chewy Granola Bar, which has 140 calories or less and lots of fiber and protein.

Favorite Comfort Food

A homemade brownie.

My Top Smart-Eating Tip

Plan! If I have two holiday parties in a row, I'll decide in advance which one I'm going to eat dessert at and which one I'm not.

The Best Nutrition-Label Trick I Know

Look for cereals that contain five grams or more of fiber and five grams or fewer of sugar. Shredded Wheat cereals meet these criteria.

Yes, I Exercise

I run six miles on my treadmill from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. while watching the news. Working out gives me more flexibility to eat what I want, since I'm burning 500 calories every morning.
